> > Hi !
> > My name is Mathieu Bridon, known online as bochecha.
> > I discovered Linux at school 4 years ago and was really annoyed by the
> > fact that I had to use it when it seemed totally broken.
> > Two and a half years ago, out of curiosity, I decided to try it again. I
> > spent one week with Ubuntu, breaking it every time I was trying to do
> > something with it, reinstalling it twice a day. :)
> > Then someone made me discover Fedora and had the patience to explain me
> > the basics so that I could at least use it. I then discover the french
> > Fedora community, in which I instantly felt at home and quickly made
> > some friends.
> > What kept me in Fedora all this time and will probably keep me ad vitam
> > aeternam is its strong ethics (only open source, always upstream,
> > etc...).
> > After being involved in the french community by doing support on the
> > forum and IRC, I decided it was time for me to start contributing
> > directly to the Fedora project. My first RPM just landed in
> > updates-testing and I might join the translation team if I ever find the
> > time for it.
> > I also co-initiated with Mohamed Elmorabity the Fedora | Paris project.
> > What we do is gather the Fedoristas who live in Paris and have diner
> > every 2 weeks, and more if the night goes on.
> > Of course, we all already know each other on IRC or on the forums, so
> > those meetings are more a way to know the non-geek-side of each other,
> > and build friendship inside our community.
> > Fedora | Paris organized the Saturday night party this week end before
> > the Sunday Install Party, so that people who don't live in Paris and
> > were coming in Paris for the IP would receive a warm welcome.
> > As an Ambassador, I'll try to go on promoting Fedora everywhere I can,
> > starting with the IT company where I work which is too Debian / Ubuntu
> > oriented. I'd like to have some co-workers contributing to Fedora, as
> > they already contribute to other FOSS projects.
> > Looking forward to working with you, almighty Fedora Ambassadors of the
> > world. :)
> Welcome to the Club, Mathieu.
> I hope the arm twisting wasn't too painful this weekend ;)
